Re: Sometimes being the mean mommy is so hard

When my son was little, I would tell him "Okay go potty but don't flush. Mom wants to make sure you are really going to the bathroom and not just playing. Do you really have to go potty?"

That stopped the 10 times he would go to the potty in 20 minutes after going to bed. He got ready just fine ... went to bed ... and then did the I have to go pee routine.

Re: Sometimes being the mean mommy is so hard

why is making her go to bed and setting some boundaries considered being a "mean mommy"? just from your post, I would say that you are being to lenient if bed time is an hour long power struggle. getting her rested and setting boundaries makes you a good mom! not mean
